4.0 out of 5 stars classic disney animation, 12 Dec 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Melody Time [DVD] [1951] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
this film from 1947 is not as well known as most other disney animated films. It was being produced as the second world war was coming to as close and because most of disney's profits were low due to audiences in europe being cut off and money being trapped in other countries disney didn't have the money to create the masterpieces such as Fantasia, Snow White or pinocchio which had gone before it. however the film is still enjoyable the seven segments are all set to popular music (well it was popular back in 1947) and features acts such as the andrews sitsters. The film shows that although disney didn't have a lot of money they could still entertain. Another reason why this dvd is so good is that it is completey unedited. In recent years many films from the 40's and 50's have been edited due to politically incorrect stereotypes or antisocial behaiviour. Now i know that these things are unacceptable in today's worls but back then it was common place and i do not believe classic pieces of history should be tampered with and thta is why i am so happy that this dvd is in full because the verion of melody time released in the united states has parts cut out. with fantastic animation this film deserves to be recognised along with all the other disney animated classics. some children may find it slightly uninteresting because of the fact the majority of the movie is aniamtion set to music (much like fanatasia) and get the most out of it an interest in animation is needed, but even if your not an animation expert it is still enjoyable and if you were a child or an adolescent during the late forties it is a perfwect trip down memory lane to hear some of the singers and bands from that period.
